    I bought the SGP 5.0 last week and i dont regreat my choice. Its the best investment if you live in a metropole with a lot of free public network connection. I can connect my SGP 5.0 everywhere in Montreal city. I can use it like a phone when i use skype (but dont use video option, it drain the battery really fast). I bought the 5 inch version, its cool for gaming but its a little big in a pocket. If you live in a village, go for a smartphone OR with a tablet with a 3G key.Negative points:- The camera do a correct job for photo, but it dont do the job for video (but honestly, who care...)- No instruction included- Watch yourself in a bus or train, The screen is big and schiny, its obtrusive and visible; some pick pocket think its a galaxy note too (by the size). Its better than any ipod.

    A good design idea for a media player except the essential component, namely the wifi, works horribly. My other wifi gadjets work well but with the Samsung all I got was drop signals, constant " obtaining IP protocol" and major signal interruptions. Very unhappy with this product.

      The Galaxy 5.0 is a great mp3 player and much easier to use than the Ipod and Itunes. Great sound with plenty of volume, nice tone and a good range of sound. Easy to download music, lots of apps., and all around great unit.

        Comments about Samsung 8GB Galaxy Player 5.0":

        I use it for pictures, Youtube and apps. I love the big screen and drag and drop file transfers and not having to use Itunes. I don't like the driver issues that took me 2 days to work around. It takes hours to charge up rather than the minutes my ipod did, and it crashes a bit more often. But it has a GPS which the Ipod doesn't. And it is cheaper! I recommend this tablet to anyone who isn't planning on synching with a computer or who is enough of a geek to work out any possible issues.

            The desciption did not say that it comes with a charger, so I bought a separate charger. There was no need. A charger comes included.I liek the feature that as you type it suggest you the most likely words u are looking to type.

            Comments about Samsung 8GB Galaxy Player 5.0":

            Purchased the Samsung Player 5.0 for my 15-yr old daughter who wanted to absolutely get an iPod. I convinced her to look into other product lines as Apple does not allow for customization nor expandable memory, however the Samsung Player 5.0 accepts micro SD cards up to 32GB.

            It has been an entire week since she owns it and there is not a single day that passes-by without her telling me how awesome the Samsung Player 5.0 is.
            With its 5-inch screen, its replaceable battery, reasonably-fast processor, easy file-transfer format (PC to device), and full support from Google, this device has everything an iPod can offer and more, and all this at a lower cost.

            For the past 5 years, I have been an iPhone user and I am certain that my next device will be a Samsung device.

            I recommend the Samsung Player 5.0 to anyone who is looking for an "iPod-like" device but without all the restrictions that come with Apple (such as the need to install iTunes on your PC, Memory is expendable on the Samsung Player 5.0, battery can be changed fast and painless fashion). Why pay more for less?

            5 STARS!

                        I don't like what Samsung shows on their web site which does not correspond to what it has on the player, then how can we follow any instruction? For example they said Icon "market", and yet I found nowhere that icon "market".
                        I gave 3 stars because of that.

                          I use this playr for reading, music, videos,,surfing internet, calling home when oversea for free, and GPS navigation, etc.

                          I like everything about this player, especially the GPS capabilities, except ...

                          - the sound quality when using an earphone (very noisy)
                          - the Android OS (it is quite buggy and ext SD card suddenly disconnected without any reason)

                            I bought this mainly to listen to music but find I use it more for surfing, checking email, and checking the weather than listening to music. With a 32gig micro sd card installed I find I have tons of room for songs, movies, and topo maps. With the micro sd slot this device is far more useful than crApple's ipod touch.

                                I use this player for everything! It's a mobile office! Small enough to fit in you pocket, yet large enough to read anything comfortably. I use the GPS to the fullest in my truck & on my boat. Love how the Google features work seamlessly between my computer and the player. It's an iPod touch to the n'th degree!

                                  Works great, very fast.
                                  Only problem is that it does not play WMA books we download from local library.

                                    I chose this one over the Ipod touch for three main reasons:
                                    1) Android operating system
                                    2) Big 5" screen
                                    3) Additional 32 Gb storage via micro SD card

                                    The music player that comes preinstalled is nothing to write home about, but you can download Poweramp or winamp player for free in the android store.

                                    A good design idea for a media player except the essential component, namely the wifi, works horribly. My other wifi gadjets work well but with the Samsung all I got was drop signals, constant " obtaining IP protocol" and major signal interruptions. Very unhappy with this product.
